Join us as the Team Captains choose their teams by drawing names out of a proverbial hat. Team members will then congregate with their captain to start brainstorming ideas for their team and come up with team names and colors.
Handicapping Info: Course handicaps as of 5/15/16 will be used.
Day 1 Handicap Allowance - Better Net Ball: All players receive full course handicaps. The course handicap of all four players is reduced by the handicap of the player with the lowest handicap, who then plays from scratch. Example: Players A, B, C and D have course handicaps of 5,10,15 and 20, respectively. Player A plays from scratch, B receives 5 strokes, C receives 10 strokes and D receives 15 strokes.
Day 2 Handicap Allowance - Alternate Shot: The allowance for the higher-handicapped side is 50% of the difference between the combined course handicap of each side. The lower handicapped side competes at scratch. Example: Side A-B with a combined course handicap of 25 competes against side C-D with a combined course handicap of 36. The higher handicapped side, C-D receives 6 strokes (36-25=11 X 50%=5.5 rounded to 6)
Day 3 Handicap Allowance - Singles Match Play: Both players receive full course handicap. The course handicap is then reduced by the course handicap of the player with the lower handicap, who then plays from scratch. Example: a player with a course handicap of 27 receives four strokes from a player with a course handicap of 23.
Player(s) receive strokes in all formats on the allocated handicap-stroke holes (hardest holes).
Day 1 - Wednesday - May 18 - LP -Four Ball Match Play (Better Net of the Twosome): Two players from one team play against two players from the other team. Each person plays her own ball and the best net score wins the hole.
Day 2 - Monday, May 23 - LP - Foursome Match Play (Alternate Shot): Two players play against two players. Each side plays one ball. Partners decide who will tee off on odd holes and who will tee off on even holes. After tee shots, the partners then play alternate shots until the ball is holed. The side with the lower net score wins the hole.
Day 3 - Wednesday, May 25 - PR - Singles Match Play: One person plays against another person. The player who has the lower net score wins the hole.
Scoring Rules - All Formats:
The side or player who has the lower net score on a hole wins the hole and a point for that hole. If a hole is halved, no points are awarded for that hole. The match is won by the side or player who wins the most holes (points) or who is leading by a number of holes (points) greater than the number of holes remaining to be played. Keep a running total of which player or side is up and by how many to determine when the match is over. For example, with two holes remaining, if side or player A has won 8 holes and side or player B has won 5 holes, side A would be 3 up and the match would be over 3 and 2. Each match is worth one point for the winning side. If the match is tied, then each side is awarded 1/2 point each.
All putts must be holed out unless conceded by the opposing team or player. Once a hole is conceded, please pick up and move on. You may move your ball out of divots on the fairway or casual water. Otherwise, play the ball as it lies. If cart path only, lift, clean and place in your own fairway. USGA and local ORLGA rules will apply.
Prizes: Winning Team takes all.
Awards Presentation: After golf on Wednesday, May 25th at Tamers or Tigers, depending on availability, there will be a social to recognize the winning team. A light dinner will be provided. Cash bar.
